"Nice color, SLP handling and v6 performance package with leather seats really makes this v6 shine. Handles amazingly well, with just an aftermarket cat back exhaust, did the quarter mile in 16.06 seconds at 88 mph. Very fun as my first car. Whats not so great: paint cracking on bumpers with swirls, seats uncomfortable even with the rare leather."
"Outstanding Vehicle. Best of both worlds. Performance and Economy. Car is 100% Factory/Stock, it is a True Camaro SS. Car does 13's in the 1/4 mile and gets 28mpg on the highway. Love the LS1 with 6 speed manual tranny, it's awesome. Won 16 Trophies in Two Seasons of Car Show Circuit in Kansas. I am now looking for the same car in Convertible if a True SS Convertible exists. I haven't seen one in 4 years of Car Shows. Lot of Z-28's with SS badges/options added but so far I have found no True 2000 Camaro SS Convertibles."
"This car is in great condition for its age. I've done all mechanical work and have the receipts to go with it. It bright red with a Panasonic stereo/cd. It has the Z-28 wheels so it handles like dream."
Pros: "Great power for low price & extremely fun to drive"
Cons: "Plain plastic interior, eats tires if abused"

"I bought this car off the Chevrolet lot in February 2001. It is a champagne colored SS and came with SLP exhaust and "ultra performance" suspension packages, 6 speed transmission, T-tops and 17" wheels with 275x40 tires. It has been my daily driver for 14 years and counting. I love it. I went to the market the other day and a guy driving a new BMW M3 told me how clean and good looking my car was. I've had comments like this since I bought it. Car guys like the Camaro.
What a fun car to drive with plenty of power and rear wheel drive. Drift is predictable and controllable with the 3.42:1 rear axle and the wide Z-rated tires. Steering response is fantastic with the Bilstein suspension system and the 35mm front anti-sway bar. The ride is a bit rough / stiff, and you have to watch your "nose" when approaching driveways, but the head-snapping responsiveness of both the steering and throttle makes it all worth it.
If driven mildly, skip-shifting as much as possible, and using 6th on the freeway, it will get a respectable 22 mpg in a mix of freeway and city. All freeway and just cruising (obeying the speed limits) will yield the rated 27 mpg.
Like another reviewer wrote, I've had only minor issues with my car at 129,000 miles: Driver's window motor, water pump, roller bearing in the left rear axle, and bubbling of the clear-coat on the black roll-hoop are about it. It still shows the same values at the smog station (I live in CA) while power and fuel economy haven't changed at all since day one. Highly recommended."
